Brenda and Roger are more than the perfect hosts in this beautiful accommodation and location. Brenda provides superb breakfast and evening meals and nothing is too much trouble for her. Roger is a wonderfully funny man, always laughing and joking and kept us entertained throughout our 7 day stay. I must compliment them both on their wonderful hospitality and generosity.... More

Great B&B, beautifully clean and great attention to detail. Super breakfast made all the more enjoyable with 'bird watching'. Brenda and Roger excellent 'mine hosts' . Lovely quiet location but easily accessible to the A377 and all routes. Highly recommend.

We have just returned to Scotland after a lovely week in North Devon with Brenda and Rodger.They made us so welcome, nothing was ever too much trouble.Apart from Brenda's wholesome meals we loved spending the evenings chatting to our hosts and the other guests.There was never a dull moment!

From the moment we met Brenda and Roger we knew this was the place to be. We were met with coffee and Devon-style scones in glorious sunshine. Our room could not have been better, in a country house overlooking hills with sheep and cattle. All meals were excellent, preceded with drinks and accompanied with wine. Our hosts treated all guests... More

Spotless, relaxing B&B in a beautiful rural location with very friendly and caring hosts. Our second visit with our family (we all fitted in one room which is a great help with young children) and we were looked after very well again. Lovely garden and lots to do within a short drive - attractions and fantastic beaches. Highly recommended.

Once again we had a wonderful holiday. My husband has disabilities and Roger and Brenda attended to our every need in their own charming and efficient way. The food and accommodation were excellent. Lots of fun and we left feeling refreshed and ready to face the 'everyday' again. We look forward to our next visit.

This is our third visit to West Down and again it didn't disappoint with wonderful hosts in Brenda and Roger who made us feel like part of the family. Yet again the food was exceptional with a wide variety of choice. We stayed in the disabled room which was in a separate annexe and had all the facilities we required.... More
